OBJECTIVES: The overall objective for activities under this
APS is to improve livelihoods and promote recovery with resilience for the more heavily conflict-affected areas in South Sudan and to lay the foundation for longerterm peace and stability by ensuring activities encourage positive inter-communal and intra-communal interactions where possible. The sub-objectives to be achieved by each multi-sector intervention are listed below. Applicants are required to propose layered and integrated interventions that account for the current fluid security situation in South Sudan by using an adaptive lens that allows for quick transition between humanitarian and development approaches based on contextual changes and results of continuous projectmonitoring. Proposed interventions must address all four sub-objectives. 1) Infrastructure activities proposed under this APS are expected to increase economic opportunities via market access and value-added opportunities, improve access to critical basic services, and strengthen inter- and intra-communal relations among heavily conflict-affected populations. 2) Agriculture, livestock, and fisheries activities proposed under this APS are expected to support livelihoods in heavily conflict-affected areas to increase communities? ability to recover from negative impacts of the conflict on their livelihoods and mitigate potential for intra- and inter-communal violence stemming from pressure on livelihoods. 3) Economic Opportunity activities proposed under this APS should promote inclusive private sector development that seeks to balance benefits across communities and foster positive economic interdependencies, when possible. 4) Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) activities proposed under this APS should address the complex water, sanitation, and hygiene issues exacerbated by the humanitarian emergency in conflict areas with a specific focus on improving health and reducing risk for communicable disease outbreaks. WASH activities should be thoughtfully targeted and designed to integrate approaches to improve security and dignity among IDP and host communities.
USAID will not accept applications from individuals. All applicants must be legally recognized organizational entities under applicable law.

Non-Profit Organizations 2) U.S. and Non-U.S. For-Profit Organizations 3) U.S. and Non-U.S. Colleges and Universities
USAID anticipates that up to four cooperative agreements of at least US$10 million per award will be awarded as a result of this APS.
USAID will not consider any individual applications below a minimum of
US$10 million or above a maximum of US$20 million. The program duration is for up to 36 months from the date of award. Applicants are not required to include counterpart funding. However, applications that include additional in-kind and/or cash contributions from non-USG sources will be more competitive, since cost-sharing demonstrates a strong commitment to the planned activities.
